Art Thieme sings an American cowboy version of Barbara Allen, which he learned in the 1960's from an old cowboy in Cheyenne. Quite nice.

I've always presumed that Barbara Allen was Engklish as the first version that I heard was set in the west country of England. However since then I have also seen versions that seem to be set in Scotland.

Have to pass on the rest, as they are outside of my collection. Guess I'll have to start learning more songs!!!

Well, I always thought Barbara Allen was Scottish. Maiden's Prayer is definitely American. Omie Wise and Down In The Willow Garden are certainly American versions of old ballads....oh hell, I'll just get outta here til the experts come along. Won't be long!
